Model Information
For more information about this model, go to water.usgs.gov
Spatial Resolution
Spatial resolution is variable and the grid mesh can be nested, curvilinear, or rectilinear. Flow rates can be given in cm/s.
Temporal Resolution
Resolution is specified through the input file and times steps re on the order of 15 minute increments.
Outputs
Groundwater flow and pollutant transport and flux behavior.
Intended User

Inclusion of Climate Change
Climate parameters are not explicitly captured, but climate effects could be incorporated through the input files.
